Mental health - Need a chat?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone hope your all doing well and staying safe during this lockdown!

 

So... On the last game I joined I made a thread like this and it was a great success and I really believe I managed to help a few people in need so hopefully I can do the same here!

 

I run a small non profit charity in real life as I've unfortunately lost 4 friends to suicide over the past few years. I've also been in a really dark place myself at one point so I know how horrible it can feel when you're really feeling down in the dumps and don't know who to talk to.

 

I'm not a trained professional or anything of the sort but I've been told by people who've seen multiple paid professionals that talking to someone normal who's not getting paid to talk to them really shows that someone is there to listen to them.

 

You can add me on discord at MrTobbo#2717 (capital M and T) and if you don't want me to know who you are it's really quick and easy to make a new disposable discord we can chat on in private. I'll NEVER repeat anything said to me without permission from youself (Unless I believe there is immediate danger to your well-being then I may contact your local authorities etc).

 

It can be related to anything, you can be male or female.. You can be from anywhere.. 

 

Even if you have a friend you think could benefit from this who's not on the server feel free to send them my way 🙂

What a kind, and generous lad. My DM's are always open as well, thank you for making this clear for our community!

I think most of us have needed someone to talk to at one point in our life and I'm more than happy to spend some time to do the same for anyone else who may be in that situation. 

 

Thanks for your kind words ❤️

Hey Tobbo, this is a really cool service that you're offering and I have nothing but respect for it. It's nice to know that the option is always there, and that I can direct someone to you if it comes to it!

Tobbo,

I want to say from the bottom of my heart that this thread is absolutely heart-melting.  This really touches home because just like you I had someone dear to me end their life short.  I would go on for many months debating with myself over and over if I had done all that I could to prevent the situation but in reality all this was doing was deteriorating my mental health.  Time would pass and I would actually become ASIST trained which was the first step toward my HCN (Level II) certificate and this training really made me understand the fundamentals of mental health, and sometimes unfortunately there will become situations that arise without any warning signs, however it is important for us to lessen the chances of that by ALWAYS being an open ear. 


You sir are making one of the biggest differences in the world one person at a time, I truly appreciate it.


(I am always an open option as well for a message or PM if no one else is available)

Great to hear man, Like I said before I've had no form of training however it was something I was looking at doing before all this lockdown stuff started.

 

After I'd lost a few friends I kept looking at the what I could have done and such but then I realised there is nothing you can change now.. Best you can do it try and help one person at a time. At first I didn't take it too seriously till one guy came and had a chat for a few hours with me and at the end the chat he said I'd saved his life and he was 100% set on killing himself that day.. Blew my mind.

 

Within a week I had 20k flyers and a website up and running after that, the sites not very active anymore I mainly have people pm me on Facebook and Discord these days.

 

https://letstalknortheast.co.uk/ is the website but please contact me by discord or you can pm me ingame 🙂

 

Also Gepan if you ever need a chat you know where I am mate 🙂
